Overview

It is increasingly recognised that caring for the spiritual needs of patients is a highly significant yet often neglected and misunderstood aspect of nursing care. This is in part due to the lack of guidance and instruction which nurses receive regarding this sensitive and personal aspect of our lives. This book aims to provide an accessible introduction to issues concerning the spiritual dimension of nursing practice. It draws extensively on case studies illustrating applications to practice and encourages the reader to explore, through reflective activities, what spirituality means to them and to the patients they care for.
